2016 Vintage

The balanced weather conditions of this vintage, characterised by the right amount of all the elements, enabled to make powerful, yet elegant wines. A mild and relatively dry winter was overthrown by a cold and wet spring. Summer was warm and
sunny which compensated for the wet and cold spring. A cold September with Nordic winds allowed for the grapes to reach perfect maturity.

Grape variety: 100% Sangiovese.

Harvest: The grapes for the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2016 were picked from September 13th to October 4th.

Vinification: The fermentation was spontaneous. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration on the skins lasted up to 30 days, depending on the individual lots.

Ageing: 18 months mainly in large Slavonian oak casks (called botti) and oak barriques (225 ltr and 500 ltr).
